Default Can you help to identify the sex of these hamsters?

I thought they are all female, but I have noticed that one of the hamster (Salt) is mounting another (Pepper) one.

I just sexed my Robos and they look like this also. They were sexed as female at the store.

It might be a display of dominance rather than a reproductive thing. They do look female to me. The males have quite a distinctly different looking genital area.

I'm not sure if it is the same for hamsters but female dogs do sometimes 'mount' each other in an attempt to display and assert dominance over one another.

As a side note, if they begin fighting, please house them separately as they are capable of killing one another. Are they all from the same litter?
